Craft: Hand-Block Printing
One of the earliest and simplest methods of textile printing, Block printing is, very simply put, the printing of patterns on textile using incised wooden blocks. Block printing involves myriad steps, but the most important step is the preparation of the block which determines the quality and clarity of impressions. The block is then dipped in the desired dye and carefully placed adjacent to the preceding impression of the block as per the design. Sakhi gives a contemporary twist to block print by combining modern graphic designs like bold Zig Zag patterns in contrasting red and black hues on traditional Indian fabrics like Kanchivaram silks. The multiple stages involved in this hand craft makes the fabric soft making it fall well.The Kameez also features elaborate mirror work placed by skilled artisans in Nalagonda region in Andhra Pradesh, India. Each glass mirror is placed and stitched individually to create a grand necklace design, this same work is featured on the two sleeves as well.
